Ryback def. Damien Sandow
It always brings a smile to my face whenever Sandow wrestles and he receives a surprisingly good reaction. It's amazing to me that a guy who hasn't been on WWE TV in close to a year can still elicit such a response. That's a testament to how over he got himself with that Mizdow gimmick and how WWE has wasted him ever since. Nevertheless, he scored more offense than I thought he would, making this one of the more enjoyable squash matches I've seen in some time. In the end, Ryback went over strong, but is it possible WWE has already given up on his heel push? He hasn't been on anything other than Superstars or Main Event in weeks.
Dolph Ziggler def. Tyler Breeze
Remember when these two were feuding late last year? Me either. Ziggler didn't mean much then, but he has managed to mean even less in the months since. That's why he's the perfect opponent for Baron Corbin right now because at least Corbin can get an easy yet credible win out of it. As for Breeze, not much more can be said about him than what's been said already. It's simply sad to see how far he's fallen. On the bright side, he and Ziggler had a fun little match and I couldn't tell you the last time two wrestlers kicked out of each other's finishers on Superstars. The crowd was quiet for the contest for the most part, but they came alive whenever Ziggler hit his signature spots.
As a fan of both Ryback and Sandow, I enjoyed their encounter, and as noted, it exceeded expectations (even though that's not saying much). Furthermore, Ziggler and Breeze had one of the better Superstars matches in recent memory, so on the whole, this was an above-average edition of Superstars. Not must-see by any means, but I wouldn't fault you for leaving it on in the background while you're doing other things. Plus, Raw was highly enjoyable this week, so the Raw replays are an added treat.
